23.40 – For those of you that work in open plan offices with Spurs or Chelsea or Man Utd fans, why not display the all new A R S E B L O G double winners wallpaper on your PC? Click on the ‘Other’ section above to find it.
13.50 – So, it’s goodbye to Dicko and Gilles. Tony Adams is expected to announce his retirement at tomorrow night’s testimonial, and according to some sources Martin Keown is off to join Newcastle. That’s a huge amount of experience for any team to lose, and while it may seem odd to release Keown, you have to say AW seems to know the right time to let a player leave. Look at Steve Bould at Sunderland.
I guess we’ll see another couple of fringe players leave, maybe Stepanovs and Luzhny – although it was great to see Brother Oleg having such a laugh during the post-match celebrations yesterday. He’s never quite made himself a regular, and never quite won over the fans, but I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for him.
As for arrivals, well, Silly Season begins now I guess. If you hear any rumours or speculation, email me and we can look back at the start of next season and see how wrong we’ve all been.
I’ll start by predicting Kevin Hofland will sign before the World Cup. The sun is shining again here, so I’ll make the most of it. Laters.
